Large vehicles on the road such as 18 wheelers have a lot more safety requirements to meet than your standard car. The reason is, they’re much more dangerous than your average car, and many things can malfunction and go wrong leaving other drivers on the road vulnerable. There are several different protocol requirements a truck must meet in order to drive legally on the roads. Drivers of the larger trucks also have safety requirements to meet including only being allowed a certain amount of time to drive per day. When accidents occur with large trucks a lot of the time it’s because they didn’t follow the laws required. By not following the laws makes these trucks incredible dangerous to drive next to and often results in fatal accidents.
Normal car accidents often result in serious injuries, but when a personal vehicle collides with a commercial truck, like an 18-wheeler or garbage truck, the consequences can be devastating. Victims of truck accidents may face life-threatening health problems, require costly medical treatment and need time away from work to heal. The negligent party responsible for the accident should be held accountable for these and other damages.
If you have been involved in a truck accident, you and your loved ones should not have to worry about the financial obligations associated with your recovery.
